You’re gonna’ love this!
I love that I no longer have to make that frowny face when I drive past my favorite coffee shop! This sugar free pumpkin spice latte recipe means that I can have a rich creamy coffee drink with all the traditional holiday spice any time I want.

You can make this incredible sugar free pumpkin spice latte recipe in the blink of an eye. It can literally be ready in the time it takes to make a cup of coffee!
This sugar free pumpkin spice latte recipe only requires a few simple ingredients, most of which you probably already have. This is one of my favorite healthy pumpkin recipes because I can enjoy it all season long without remorse or regret.
Plus, I save $5 every time I drive by the coffee shop and don’t stop! Here’s what you need to make it:
Coffee – Use the brand of your choice. Just make it hot and strong for best results.
Milk – Your favorite low carb milk is fine. I like to use almond milk, but you can use coconut milk, oat milk or even just cow’s milk (although cow’s milk is high in carbs!).
Pumpkin – You’ll need a tablespoon of pumpkin puree. Canned is perfect as long as it’s not pumpkin pie filling.
Spice – This sugar free pumpkin spice latte recipe calls for a little vanilla extract and pumpkin pie spice. I try to avoid imitation vanilla because all I can taste is the alcohol and it kind of messes up the flavor of the latte in my opinion.
Also, if you don’t have pumpkin pie spice on hand you can use cinnamon and nutmeg instead.
Whipped Cream – The whipped cream is totally optional, but it makes this latte oh-so decadent. Of course, I use unsweetened whipped cream.
Tools To Make
Making this sugar free pumpkin spice latte recipe is so easy and it only requires a couple of simple tools. Nothing crazy – no sink full of dirty dishes. (Yay!)
Here’s what you need:
- Small saucepan – for heating ingredients
- Coffee maker – to brew some coffee
See? Easy, peesy!
If you happen to make more than you can drink in a sitting, this latte can be stored in the fridge in a covered container or mason jar. Keep in mind that some separation is natural, and you’ll need to stir it when you reheat it.
Can You Freeze This?
This sugar free pumpkin spice latte recipe is best enjoyed fresh but technically it can be frozen. If freezing is a must, you may want to heat everything BUT the coffee and freeze it in single serve portions.
When you’re ready to enjoy your pumpkin spice latte, thaw out your ingredients and brew some fresh coffee.
Meal Prepping Tips
Want to enjoy this pumpkin spice latte every morning throughout the season?
I suggest making the coffee fresh every morning. But you can absolutely stash a jar of the other ingredients mixed together in your fridge! That way it’s a brew, heat and pour kind of situation.
The rich creamy flavor of this pumpkin spice latte is bold enough to stand on its own but it’s also fantastic with a piece of low carb pumpkin bread. In fact, I can’t think of a better afternoon snack during the holiday season (unless you throw a piece of low carb pumpkin cheesecake in the mix!).
There are a few ways you can tweak this latte recipe for a new flavor twist. Here are a couple of tasty suggestions:
What Kind Of Milk Can I Use?
Part of the beauty of this latte recipe is its flexibility. I prefer to use almond milk, but you can use your favorite low carb milk for this recipe. Any of them will work just fine.
Can I Use Espresso Instead of Coffee?
Sure! In fact, espresso is the best way to enjoy this sugar free pumpkin spice latte, although most of us don’t have an espresso maker. Just substitute espresso for the coffee!
Can I Make This Decaf?
If caffeine doesn’t always agree with you, you can totally make this with decaf coffee. That way you still get to enjoy the warm rich holiday flavor without the effects of caffeine.
